Nokia 770 Internet Tablet

Post by Mark

Nokia Tablet

Finally a new gadget for me to crave and dream of. Its been such a dry period with gadgets lately with the same crap over and over. Nothing has been grabbing my attention, the Palm LifeDrive caught my attention for a full 5 minutes, but then I found out it ran on the ancient Palm OS 5 (where is 6?!?!) and that it would actually be less responsive then my current 3 year old Tungsten | T. Then suddenly out of the blue, the Nokia 770 tablet came along.

From all the companies on this planet, Nokia was the last one I would have imagined would come up with a device like this. This is what the Sony Clie was supposed to be and what Apple should have introduced, a pda like device that allows you to surf the web.

The current tablets in the market are too big, bulky and expensive, the OQO is tiny and cool but too expenisve, and PDAs generally have just been lagging behind in technology. The new Nokia tablet on the other hand is a mixture of a pda and a tablet pc, its the best of both worlds, a perfect combination.

The new Nokia has wifi, bluetooth, a large 800×400 resolution touch screen display (which is perfect for web browsing) and it runs on linux. The price? Only $350. The MAJOR downside is that its coming out next fucking year in fall! Why did they even bother to show it to us now, its teasing us. This is what I like about Apple, they don’t show you or tell you anything, and then when they do show us something, its available on their store 30 minutes later for purchase…

B-Side 194 26/5/05

Post by Mark

Today I had a tough time choosing my picture of the day. I was going to go for this one but decided to go for the more traditional fishing boat picture. This B-Side picture was taking inside the Kout Mall. This Nissan Armada was parked in the middle of the fountain I guess as a display or something.

iPod SmartDeck

Post by Mark

smart deck

I don’t know how I missed this, maybe because at first glance the tape adapter looks like a regular tape adapter. But, when you read on you realize that this is not regular by any means. The Griffin Technology tape adapter actually allows you to control your ipod using your cars tape deck! Someone told me about this 5 minutes ago and I was like no way, then I checked out the site and turns out its true. This means we can ditch the crappy iTrip and finally get some decent sound. The SmartDeck is coming out soon and you can preorder it now for only $29.99 [Link]

Nissan Murano By Jeremy Clarkson

Post by Mark

I was checking to see if Jeremy Clarkson (the guy from the show Top Gear) had reviewed the Nissan 350z when I noticed he had recently reviewed the Murano. So, I decided to read his Murnao review since I couldn’t find a 350z one. I was a surprised to see he gave the Murano a full 5 star rating since the last car he gave a 5 to was the Aston Martin DB9. Now I am considering if I should get the Murano instead of the 350z. I know they are 2 totally different cars but I have been enjoying Nats Jeep lately and wouldn’t mind getting an SUV for myself also. It looks a bit like a chick car though no? [Link]

Star Wars Gear

Post by Mark

I was passing by Hallmark yesterday at Marina Mall and noticed they just got a whole bunch of Hasbro Star Wars toys. Me and Nat played with the lightsabers a bit (around KD4) and then we played with the Darth Vader mask (around KD24). They also have action figures and stuff. Pretty cool, I am sure Toys R Us just got a whole bunch of Star Wars toys too. [Link]

Futurama Coming Back

Post by Mark

There are currently preliminary talks going on to try and bring Futurama back (they got cancelled in 2003). This time though they won’t be coming back to TV, they would head straight to DVD instead. I hope they end up doing this, and if it works we might get other cool shows back like The Tick.

Todays B-Side is from my office building. They were fixing the elevator again today but this time it was like only 1 guy working. I took his picture and I later realized he was a B-Side before! Poor guy, seems like he will never make the A-list. Click here for todays A-Side picture.

Dimensions of the Xbox 360 vs PS3

Post by Mark

For those of you who read engadget you might have seen a post today with a side by side comparison shot of the PS3 and Xbox360. The picture shows the Xbox360 much larger then the PS3, this is not true. In reality the xbox360 is smaller. The picture above is the accurate dimensions, the one on Engadget is wrong. If you notice the power socket of the xbox360 in the engadget shot, its been doctored. I really like Engadget, but sometimes they can be really unproffesional.

DC Comics New Logo

Post by Mark

dc comics

DC Comics launched a new updated logo earlier this month. I personally don’t like it, its too swooshy for my tastes. The old logo was a classic and I think it could have lived on for many more years. Now I personally haven’t picked up and read a comic in years so I don’t know if my opinion counts (I might be too old) but I still think the new logo is soulless. The old logo was designed by Milton Glaser over 25 years ago and the new logo was design by Josh Beatman of Brainchild Studio. It will be showing up on all their comics starting June.
